    11= Booting Into an Environment to do your Installation
     2
     3The two most common ways to boot into an environment for installing Debian are: USB and Network/PXE Boot.
    24
    35== USB Stick ==
    46
    5 Come with a bootable USB stick with Debian Squeeze installed (as of 2010-05-25, all physical servers are being installed with squeeze and will be creating KVM virtual servers).
    6 
    7 To create a USB installer for Debian Squeeze...
     7To create a USB installer for Debian Squeeze perform the following operations on a workstation already running Debian:
    88
    99 * Download [http://ftp.nl.debian.org/debian/dists/testing/main/installer-amd64/current/images/hd-media/boot.img.gz boot.img.gz].
     
    1818 * Done!
    1919
     20If you are running Windows, you can create a USB stick using [http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/ Unetbootin].
     21
     22Once you have created a USB installer, plug it into your computer and reboot. Depending on your computer, some combination of function keys allow you to choose to boot from the USB disk instead of booting from your regular hard disk.
     23
    2024== PXE Boot ==
    2125
    22 Or, you can install using our [wiki:pxeboot_from_naomi naomi pxe install] or [wiki:pxe_boot_from_telehouse telehouse pxe install].
     26A network/PXE boot is a way to instruct your computer to boot from the network card.
     27
     28In order to successfully do a network/PXE boot, you need another computer available on your local area network that offers an installation image over the network. This process is documented [http://www.debian-administration.org/articles/478 in a debian-administrator article] and is generally for advanced users.
